We celebrate Day of the Dead in Baja Window to the South

Culture, traditions, and beliefs all gather in the wonderful holiday known as Day of the Dead in Baja California

To celebrate the advent of Day of the Dead, in the latest episode of Baja Window to the South we learn all about this mythical Mexican holiday where cempasúchil (Mexican marigold) flowers flood the streets and that is precisely what our first stop is all about.

We are talking about Mictlán de Tijuana where you will be able to enjoy the culture and nature of this incredible Mexican tradition where you will be free to admire the symbol of Day of the Dead: the cempasúchil flower.

Thanks to artist and cultural promoter, Benito del Águila, you will also discover everything about Día de Muertos: its origin, what is an altar, the history of La Catrina (the emblematic character of this festivity), as well as what makes Day of the Dead so important for the people of Mexico.

Regarding gastronomic matters, we are accompanied by Chef Richard Chiñas of Lazzo de Tinto who shows us how to make Day of the Dead bread, a delicious Mexican delicacy for these festivities, as well as cempasúchil atole to complement it.

Last but not least, American photographer Jim Platel, who has been photographing the culture of Mexico for over 35 years, tells us about his wonderful works of art being shown at Mictlán and Tecate.
